“It’s crazy that Ye did more for me in the last two weeks, than Dre did for me my whole career,” Game said.
Granted, the teaser clip doesn’t provide any context as to what prompted The Game to make that statement. That being said, there’s no denying that Kanye and the Compton rapper have been on a roll together. After dropping their collaborative single “Eazy” last month, The Game performed with Ye at his Donda listening event in Miami last week.
And yet, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone willing to shrug off Dr. Dre’s contributions to The Game’s career. After signing him to his label, Aftermath Entertainment, in 2003, Dre executive produced Game’s 2004 debut album The Documentary.
Debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 after selling 586,000 units in its first week, The Documentary featured extensive production from Dre, who produced several of the LP’s tracks, including the hit singles “Westside Story” and “How We Do.”
The Game’s Drink Champs appearance, which the hosts call a top 5 episode ever, drops this Thursday.
